Heidi Tanton Profile Picture

Meduc8ion are very pleased to introduce the latest addition to our team: our new course trainer Heidi Tanton!

What Will Heidi’s Role Involve?

Heidi will be working from both of Meduc8ion’s training centres, based in Leicester and Hinckley, and she will be training health professionals in ear anatomy, otoscopy, and earwax removal. Teaching Meduc8ion’s courses on a fortnightly basis, Heidi will be spending the rest of her time as a practicing audiologist.

Heidi’s Professional Journey

Heidi comes from a strong background in audiology, having graduated from the University of Leeds with a first-class degree in BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Audiology). She spent a good part of her education gaining hands-on experience through advising and helping patients requiring hearing care. 

She then spent two years working for the UK’s leading pharmaceutical retailer, Boots, practicing as a Hearing Aid Dispenser (HAD), before undertaking a role as a Senior Clinical Audiologist with Novus Health Ltd. During her time with Novus, Heidi worked through a contractual system called Any Qualified Provider (AQP): a type of NHS contract allowing both NHS and non-NHS organisations to provide NHS services, giving patients more choice about where they receive the health services they require. 

Recently, Heidi has set up her own hearing aid dispensing business, and she also helps the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) sector during weekends.

Being the Change: the Importance of Safe Practice

Heidi is incredibly passionate about teaching individuals about delivering quality hearing care in a safe, efficient way. She says this is something she’s been interested in for a long time, but she never wanted to stop being an audiologist.

Heidi feels that the role she has undertaken with Meduc8ion is ideal since it will allow her to experience the training side of audiology, whilst still being actively involved in the practice. She is excited about applying her wealth of knowledge and experience to her role with Meduc8ion and in this way, helping to bring the change she wants to see in the world.
